MANNING (WACH) -- Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene is set to give his first major campaign speech this weekend.
Sunday, the surprise U.S. senate nominee is speaking to the local chaper of the NAACP. The event is open to the public.
The event was originally scheduled to be held at a local church, but an anticipated large crowd prompted organizers to move the venue to accommodate more people.
The speech will now be held at the Manning Junior High School gym at 4:00 p.m.
Greene is set to challenge Republican Jim DeMint and Green Party Candidate Tom Clements this November.
